BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Americana touring artist Davey O. will be in Bellows Falls to deliver an intimate performance Friday, Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Stage 33 Live.
Davey O. is a seasoned touring performer whose pure Americana is drawn from a deep well of experience and human emotion without hackneyed storylines or insincere polish – an unflinching poet’s look at life with no apologies and a rust-belt work ethic. He has been a New Folk finalist at The Kerrville Folk Festival, an official showcase selection at the Folk Alliance Conference, and shared stages with the likes of Ellis Paul, Eilen Jewell, Suzanne Vega, Cheryl Wheeler, Sloan Wainwright, and The Kennedys.
Equal parts songwriter and storyteller, Davey O.’s two most recent CD releases were recognized with multiple honors and included on the “best of” lists of several folk-and-roots radio stations. He has earned the respect of his peers for his incredible work ethic and dedication to the art of songcraft. With a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation, Davey O. finds the universal in the particular, turning day-to-day minutiae into dusty paeans to the indomitability of the human spirit. With each tale another slice of life examined.
Door opens at 6:30 p.m. and music begins at 7:30 p.m. The first 40 advance tickets are guaranteed chairs. There’s also plenty of standing room. Attendees may bring their own camp-style seating if they wish. Advance tickets are available online at www.stage33live.com.
The listening event will be recorded and filmed.
